Quite good fun learning about overclocking this chip - think I'll see how far I can push on Auto, then find a fixed value for a stable 4.3 to 4.4 (I hope), and then try offset mode so it can dial back at idle times.

For limits, I'm planning to stay under 1.3 volts, and temps below 75 to 80; does this sound reasonable?

So if I'm not limited by temps, how do you get rid of those kernel-power traps and how do you avoid throttling?

UpdateToo much sht there. I think the OP hunted this down awhile back. 1.52V is the max VID for 2700 and 2600K

And how about the minimum? 1.71V I think?

I think you should run a couple of more hours. I thought I was getting great temps after the one hour mark passed but two hours later my temps were up by 10.

Thanks - I will certainly plan on doing that. Running in Fixed mode right now at 4.4, voltage flickering between 1.296 and 1.304. Temps are 70 to 76, but only been running about 20 mins so insufficient testing to draw conclusions as of yet.

this is what i think so far for my build i already have the ssd and the gtx 560's and psu
just need to find a mobo, cpu, ram any ideas welcome thumb.gif

I have the extreme 6 paired with a 3770k and I have to say that the board is a good over clocker. If you get a decent to good chip it can easily OC between 4.5~4.7 Ghz (I have mine @ 4.5 Ghz and my chip is not the greatest). The limiting factor would be your cooling. Another factor to limit your OC is if you buy 4 sticks of 4 Gb ram and fill up all your dimm slots. So if buying 16 Gb of ram, get two sticks of 8 Gb and only use 2 slots.

Another plus the board has is the number of fan headers and a decent way of controlling it via BIOS. It's not as robust as the Asus fan expert 2 but is good.

IMCs of Ivy Bridge are so good that having all 4 DIMM slots populated has no effect in the CPU OC. It would be a tad harder to overclock your RAM modules if you populate all DIMMs but that won't affect your CPU OC.

You are not supposed to overclock w/ your vcore on auto. Just start w/ offset

I guess I should have been more specific because I was talking about the mother board and not specifically the CPU. Also when I OC, I always do it for both the CPU and memory among other things.

I should have said another limiting factor when OCing your RAM instead of giving a blanket statement about OCing.

Killed my CPU wheee.gif

No but really, I think I just killed my CPU. I've tested everything possible except a different mobo or CPU so I shall go back to Microcenter on Saturday, hopefully, and return it and get a new chip.
